Kudo’s to Coaches

I just came back from my daughters baseball practice, and I have to tell you, those coaches are better men than I am. Yes, I know, I’m a woman, but still.

Sunday’s game was an absolute bust. I mean it was bad. The umpire made some bad calls (well, a lot of bad calls, to be honest) but the kids played badly. They were missing throws, throwing badly, not hitting, and just plain bad.

So, knowing how bad things were on Sunday, our daughter was a bit nervous about practice tonight. Understandably so, their coach is tough. We told her, whatever you do, keep your mouth shut. The ones who get mouthy are the ones he’s going to work harder than the rest. Do what he tells you and and don’t say a word. Not that she’s mouthy anyway, but you just never know, right?

Obviously some of the boys on the team either didn’t get the same speech, or they didn’t listen. I’ve never seen such disrespect or an adult than I did tonight. It was horrid! The head coach couldn’t be there tonight, but the two assistant coaches were. I know that if the head coach had been there, things would not have been as bad as they were. Honestly, it was awful. They were talking back, cursing, outright refusing to do what they were told.

I don’t understand it. I was taught and my kids are taught to respect those who are in charge. You don’t have to agree with them, you can question things you don’t necessarily understand or agree with, however you treat them with respect. There is no excuse for rudeness.

The coaches kept their cool. They did have to kick two boys out of the practice for dropping the F-bomb too many times and not even trying to follow instructions.

I swear those two men deserve an award for tonight. Or a beer.
